Let’s Share our trading desk setups and discuss how you organized your trading around it.
Here is my triple monitor trading setup,
First, for charting I use Tradingview. it has lots of built-in features. Since my trading frequency is a little high, I use trading multi-chart layout to monitor multiple pairs at once.
In fact, I use Tradinview multi-chart option for free. Learn how to use Tradingview multi-chart layout for free.
Next, for trade execution, I use Metatrader 4 (MT4) - default trading platform that every broker offers.
I’m a student. I study software engineering while trading forex full-time. Also, I’m a blogger.
So as you guys can see, I’m putting all the charts on the right-side monitor. This monitor is for monitoring charts only.
Currently, I keep two things on the left-side monitor.
- Metatrader 4 (MT4) for the execution of trades. And,
- My Trade Journal
Whenever there is a trading opportunity on the Right-side Monitor, I opened MT4 on the left-hand monitor for executions.
Just like every time a trade closes, I open my trade journal and record it there. Just like that, I keep it all in a well-organized way.
That helps me to stay focus throughout the day.
As a conclusion,
Trading screen setup does not make you a profitable trader, A trading plan, proven trading strategy and risk/money management combine with good emotional intelligence is what makes you a profitable trader.
